sweetergrrrl My other ham did the same thing before she had babies. Except we keep our hamsters and hedgies in Rubbermaid containers (with holes drilled yadda-yadda) SUCH a great idea. Easy to clean, locked up tight and little noise.

But this is a foster ham from work, so she is housed how they like... But she and the babies are doing well and growing.

miyonette22 I think the chewing is quite normal for a preggy hamster. Our hamster nibbled on the wires of her cage prior to her birthing. Giving her something to chew temporarily stopped her act. We have a teddy bear hamster.

Good luck on taking care of them! Just be observant on what she does. Try covering her tank too to isolate her so she'd feel more safe. I did just that when our hamster gave birth and all the little jellybeans survived. ^_^

sweetergrrrl Yeah it was the noise. Luckily mom had her babies that night. 6 little jellybeans. She is so busy taking care of them now, she could care less about the world around her

susiemccormick That is soooo sad about the change of bedding!! Poor babies!

Penny The chewing could be caused by boredom, what size tank is it?

Aether Aww! Can't you bribe him? I find beef jerky works wonders with my husband.

Is it the noise that's bothering him?

sweetergrrrl My boyfriend is making me take her back tomorrow.

Aether Ugh! Nothing worse than that sound! Other than the clanking noise of them pushing their wheel against the glass repeatedly. =P

sweetergrrrl She has been freaking out all night with chewing on the side of the aquarium. So I am kind of hoping that she has her babies tonight/soon because the sound of the teeth on glass is driving us nuts...

Aether Bless your heart!! Not many people would offer to take a pregnant animal home and care for it like that! I love my Syrian, but he's a boy so I've never dealt with any preggo hammies.

I just wanted to thank you for being an awesome person. =] Also, the 20 min trip may stress her out, but I think it would stress her out more being in a pet store with other animals. It has got to be a lot more quiet and calm at your house than any store could be!
